RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for Eric Sogard.

2016

Sogard provides some real baseball value with his ability to play solid infield defense, but the utter lack of offense makes him an afterthought in fantasy leagues. Sogard posted his second consecutive OPS under .600, but still managed to get 372 at-bats for the A's due to injuries, trades and a general lack of quality options. The A's have some middle-infield prospects in the pipeline, so even with Brett Lawrie gone, Sogard's ability to sneak himself into 300 at-bats per year might finally be reaching the end of the road. Sogard possesses very little fantasy value, even in very deep leagues, unless 8-10 steals with no power and a middling batting average will help your squad.

2015

There is no doubt that Sogard is a fan favorite in Oakland, but he has truly been the epitome of a light-hitting middle infielder. Sogard hit only .223 with a .567 OPS in 2014, and now has a career batting average of .223. His value comes from his versatility to play both middle-infield positions at a high level. Hidden in Sogard's season was a surprisingly effective second half, as he hit .267 and carried a .672 OPS. Unless the A's trade for a second baseman or acquire one through free agency, Sogard will likely serve as at least the right-handed part of a platoon at the position in 2015.

2014

After the early-season injury to Scott Sizemore, Sogard ended up playing a lot more than the A's anticipated. Sogard ended up with 368 at-bats and hit .266, but with very little pop. Sogard struggles against lefties and would be best used as a utility infielder providing value with his excellent defense at both second base and shortstop. Sogard managed to swipe 10 bases on the year, but he does not figure to provide much fantasy value even if he ends up playing 130 games again, which is something that will likely not happen again, especially since the A's signed another utility infielder, Nick Punto, this offseason.

2013

Sogard is a true utility player with the ability to play second base, third base and shortstop. Unfortunately, his offense has not translated to the majors at all. Sogard has hit over .300 at Triple-A over the last three years in nearly 1,000 at-bats, but in his short-term callups in Oakland, he has hit under .200. Even if he managed to find steady playing time, he does not possess enough speed or pop to generate much interest.

2012

Sogard earned his way to the majors midseason following a .298/.381/.410 line at Triple-A Sacramento, though he failed to hit (.200/.243/.329 over 70 at-bats) for the A's in a reserve role. He's expected to compete with Adam Rosales for the A's utility infielder role during spring training, but Sogard hasn't racked up impressive home-run or stolen-base totals in the minors and that leads us to believe he's little more than a low-end stopgap for deep fantasy leagues than anything else.
